  • OK the problem is resolved now … my mistake was the following:

    I post my video with this code (Incorrect):

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8l7yjJT2RBI[/youtube]

    But I had to post like this (Just the code of the video) (Correct):

    [youtube]8l7yjJT2RBI[/youtube]

    well thanks to me =)

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8l7yjJT2RBI[/youtube] is perfectly acceptable and works fine for me (I just tested it). If it’s not working for you, then please disable all other plugins and try again.

    A common problem causer are plugins that automatically make links clickable in your posts. Do you happen to have one of those plugins installed?

    Thanks Alex. That was exactly what the problem was for me.. It was the Smart SEO Links plugin, which is a fairly popular one. Do you know of one like that which works with Viper? Thanks again.

    Those link plugins should just be coded better and run at a later priority, after shortcodes are parsed.

    yeah, I deleted the plugin because it does cause other issues, but I wish I knew one that worked. Love your plugin but I’ve been hacking it a bit for Video SEO – happy to help with that if interested.
